I am using GF "Post Fields" to create a form where users will create the WordPress posts (automatically published if user is logged in).
Now, if I am to use GF for search as well, I understand I will use the "Pass Field Data Via Query String" option, and user will be re-directed to a page (or post), and the address of new page (or post) will contain all the tags the selected in the GF "search" form. Then I will manipulate the URL and form my WordPress search query and display the posts (search results for searched tags).
I hope I understood correctly.
My question: For search form, I'll again use the "Post Fields" with drop-down lists that will be identical to the ones I used to generate the content. Now, when I am using them for search, and user presses the "Search" button, and will be redirected to a page (or post), will it create another WordPress post as well? What I mean is, when I am trying to use GF as a "search" form, then I don't want to create new WP posts on result of the search queries.
Do you understand what I am asking?
